What a chess engine can do!

Chess engines are great when it comes to exploring a position. The engine will help you to explore different candidate moves and to find out key moves and ideas in a position. It will thereby show you the character of the position and also help you with the evaluation. You have to ask the right questions, the engine will give you the answers. But it does not teach you how to evaluate a position by yourself. So remember to also spend time at the chess board with the engine turned off.
